We were excited to be in Lynchburg, VA working at Sellers Verna R MD-Centra Health.
Recently, we were called in mid-project to prepare this health facility for new flooring. Our team cleared out tile, carpet, debris, and repaired surface irregularities before preparing the floor for a CSP 3, or a light shot blast, application.
With a clean, smooth surface system in place, Centra will be able to safely lay updated flooring. They chose the right team to get the job done efficiently!
Sometimes a job requires us to work outside in the cold winter air, but when it’s a big job it’s totally worth it. Our customer in Atlantic City, NJ needed us to scarify 12,000 sq. ft. in the middle of November, and we were more than ready for the challenge.
It wasn’t exactly beach weather, but our crew enjoyed a spectacular sunrise as we worked.
This job on the Ben Franklin Bridge has been a long work in progress. Check out some photos of us on week five of blasting and scarifying the road as daily traffic breezes past.
Once the job is done, the bridge should be back to business as usual with an updated new surface!
Contractors involved in bridge deck resurfacing should be aware of this potential issue:
The contractor R.E. Pierson of Bridgton, N.J. hit a snag after the bridge deck was milled to remove the asphalt road surface and left 3/8” of residual asphaltic Tar Tack Coat on the concrete deck. The contractor spent several frustrating weeks scraping the surface with an excavator and skid steer trying to remove the asphaltic material. Since the deck was going to receive a waterproofing membrane, 100% of this asphaltic material had to be removed leaving the contractor in a bind. After much discussion Kenseal a supplier referred ShotBlast, Inc. to solve the problem.
ShotBlast, Inc has a full arsenal of concrete milling, grinding and shotblasting equipment. The problem was attacked with specialized diesel powered dust free scarifying equipment to totally remove the asphaltic material and leave a clean profiled concrete deck ready for the waterproofing membrane. Mike Capasso from R.E. Pierson was happy with the speed and professionalism of ShotBlast’s service. The bridge resurfacing schedule could resume without delay.
Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) is currently in the process of expanding their fleet by adding new locomotives and multi-level cars. In order to accommodate these new vehicles, their Frazer Shop will be undergoing significant renovations.
This is a multi-phase project.
Phase 1: Earthwork and stormwater improvements
Later Phases: Construction of additional shop building and vehicle maintenance equipment, additional track modifications, and a new vehicle washer
Shot Blast Inc. was lucky enough to participate in this process. Check out the photos below for an inside look at the team preparing the concrete for an epoxy coating.
This project started in the spring of 2016 and should wrap up in the fall of 2019.
Recently, we took on a project in Philadelphia at NBC 10’s studio. In the photos, you can see our team in action removing the existing, worn tile floor and grinding the concrete underneath.
Next, we applied an epoxy coating and sealed the flooring with a coat of urethane. This new flooring is sleek and will last for years to come.
